KIERAN KENNEDY admits it was the correct decision to postpone Saturday's game against Torquay United - even if the centre-back has to wait longer to get a poor performance out of the system.

The National League encounter at The Racecourse was called off on Friday in the interests of safety, with an amber weather warning in place across the country due to storm Dennis, and heavy rain and strong winds materialising on matchday.

Kennedy says there was no way spectator safety could be undermined - Torquay fans would have had to make a 500 mile round trip in dangerous conditions - but it meant Wrexham were unable to bounce back from the 3-2 defeat at fellow strugglers Chesterfield the previous weekend.

The Reds played well but Kennedy wasn't happy with his own display or the goals conceded.

"On a personal level, I did not feel like I played well enough so I was desperate to bounce back and put that right," said Kennedy, who be hoping to return to action at high-flying Bromley this weekend.

"As a team, I thought we didn't play too badly and definitely didn't deserve to get beat.

"Every one of the goals could have been avoided, we need to learn from that and get out of the position we are in.

"We had a good week training and we were just desperate to get out there.

"You train for the game, it is what everyone looks forward to, so I was gutted it was off.

"But at the end of the day, the safety of the fans comes first. When it starts concerning the fans' safety it was the right call so I have got no complaints it being off.

"We will get another good week's training and work on a few things."

Strong winds made for a dour goalless draw in the last home game against Dagenham and Redbridge on February 1, with very few chances created, and Kennedy admits he does not like playing in those conditions.

"The wind dictates the game," said Kennedy.

"We played in it a few weeks ago and the wind just dictated the whole game.

"You would rather it be freezing and throwing it down with rain than wind, but we would still have been happy to play in it."

Although the pitch was playable when the game was postponed, heavy rain on Saturday would have put the game in doubt anyway.

"When you go the pitch you want it to stay as well as it possibly can and for as long as it possibly can," said Kennedy.

"When you looked at the weather forecast with the 50mph wind and the rain, it was definitely the right call."

Kennedy's loan deal from Port Vale has been extended until the end of the season so the defender will be available regardless of when the clash with Torquay is rearranged.

"I am delighted to be here until the end of the season so I can just concentrate on helping us get out of this position," added Kennedy.
